The Criterion Channel: Limited Engagements

These are non-Janus films which are currently streaming on the Criterion Channel. They will very likely only be available for three- or six-month engagements. The list is roughly ordered, first by their announced leaving date, and then by my (fairly reasoned) prediction of when they will leave the Channel.

Updated with new films starting in July 2022.

Expiration dates are noted when known. READ THE NOTES.

1 - 80 are announced to leave at the end of July 2022.

81 - 136 will probably leave at the end of August 2022.

137 - 249 will probably leave at the end of September 2022.

250 - 304 will probably leave at the end of October 2022.

305 - 344 will probably…
